Yankees Score Four In the Seventh To Top Red Sox

by @ 5:52 am. Filed under 1977 Yankees, 1977 Yankees Diary - May, Bucky Dent, Carlos May, Dick Tidrow, Graig Nettles, Ken Holtzman, Mickey Rivers

May 24,  1977 at Yankee Stadium
Yankees 6, Red Sox 5  (22-18)

The Yankees scored four runs in the seventh inning and they needed everyone of them as they edged the Red Sox in a one run game.  Graig Nettles and Carlos May hit solo homeruns in the seventh but you had a nice team effort.  All six runs were driven in by different Yankees and the only Yanks with two runs was Mickey Rivers and Buck Dent.

Ken Holtzman left the game in the fourth inning after a rough start but the pen and hitters picked him up in this one.  Dick Tidrow did a very nice job out of the pen though and he improved to 3-2 on the season.  He gave up one run on three hits and two walks with one strikeout in 5 1/3 innings.

May 20, 1977 at Yankee Stadium
Orioles 6, Yankees 5  (20-15)

Don Gullett was knocked around early in his start over the Orioles.  He gave up five runs (four earned) on nine hits and four walks with two strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings.  Oddly, he didn’t take the loss.  Dick Tidrow did despite having a solid relief outing.  He gave up just one run on three hits with four strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings.

For the fifth time in the last nine games, Thurman Munson had a multi-hit game.  He went four for four with two doubles and a run.  Carlos May singled twice and he drove in two runs in the loss.

Yankees Lose to Brewers in Ninth Inning

by @ 12:10 pm. Filed under 1977 Yankees, 1977 Yankees Diary - April, Carlos May, Chris Chambliss, Ken Holtzman, Sparky Lyle

April 16, 1977 at County Stadium

Brewers 4, Yankees 3  (2-5)

The Yankees lost a tough one today.  Ken Holtzman took a two run lead into the bottom of the ninth, gave up a run and handed the ball to Sparky Lyle and watched him blow the game.  The two run homerun by Cecil Cooper to tie the game up was bad enough but that wasn’t all Lyle gave up as Steve Brye singled home Sal Bando to win the game with a walk off RBI single.

Chris Chambliss hit a solo homerun and the only Yankee to have more then one hit was Carlos May who went two for four.

April 10, 1967 at Yankee Stadium

Brewers 2, Yankees 1  (1-2)

The Yankees lost another tough as the Brewers edged them for the series win.  The game was tied heading into the ninth and Don Gullett appeared to go one inning to long because he gave up the go winning run after eight solid innings.  He took the loss and he gave up two runs on seven hits and four walks with five strikeouts in 8 2/3 innings.  Both runs scored off of him were solo homeruns.

The only run for the Yankees came in the second inning.  Carlos May singled and then he scored on Willie Randolph’s triple.
